To mark the start of PRIDE Month, a movement only made possible as a result of protests carried out by Black Queer Trans people and people of colour back in 1969, Pride In Music have created an extra special “BLACK PRIDE” playlist featuring an epic mix of some pretty major smash hits!
On “BLACK PRIDE” the team at Pride In Music champion and celebrate some of today’s most relevant and culturally important artists, shining a light on true talent, to create the ULTIMATE music playlist!
Made up of 30 tracks, the specially curated compilation pays homage to an eclectic array of acts, from Kehlani, Frank Ocean and Angel Haze, to Lil Nas X, Lizzo and MNEK… stick this playlist on at any (virtual) house-party this summer, and we guarantee you will not be disappointed!

Introducing… Pride In Music
Pride in Music is a charitable and non-profit collective working to create a cross-industry network for the LGBTQ+ community, and allies all working within British Music.
Run entirely by volunteers on a strict not-for-profit basis, this inspiring team of people aim to provide visibility and a platform for young, up and coming queer musicians looking to find success in the industry.
With their combined wealth of experience, vast expert knowledge and passion to create a better and brighter future for artists, there is simply no better organisation qualified to help guide and advise the next generation of performers.
With a board and steering committee made up of highly skilled and well respected industry professionals, all of whom currently work within the music business in a variety of different roles, the Pride In Music movement aims to provide, or is already providing, the following…
- A safe-space for artists and employees of record labels, publishers, sync agents and artist managers to go to, when required, without fear or internal repercussions
- Partnerships with festivals to provide LGBTQ+ artists with the opportunity to perform (this action was achieved at the Mighty Hoopla Festival in London, when a young up-and-coming LGBTQ+ singer/songwriter opened up the festivals main stage)
- Partnerships with local homelessness or disadvantage charities to provide work placements to underprivileged youths who hope to forge a career within the music industry through work placement programs
Working actively with the full support of various UK industry trade bodies including the BPI, The MMF, The Musicians’ Union and UK Music – the Pride In Music collective are already well on their way to achieving incredible things for a community that has for too long been dismissed, forgotten and ignored!
